I’m definitely in the let him go camp. I think he has tremendous potential but have always heard his work ethic is what holds him back. If this guy had the work ethic of Antonio Brown to get into shape then he could be an even better back.
Rojo is the better RB?? What in the world are you smoking?? He can’t block in pass protection, he can’t catch passes out of the backfield (he constantly fumbles simple screens), and he can’t be counted on to push the pile for short yardage. He had TWO chances to get a TD on the 1 yard line in the Super Bowl and got stuffed on both tries. Fournette would’ve punched it in easily. Notice that after he got stuffed on 4th and 1, he got yanked.
If we have to choose between Suh or Lombardi Lenny, gimme Suh.
If Lenny’s willing to come back on another 1 year deal I’m in, if he wants a 4 year deal like she probably does, and possibly deserves, I’ll pass.
He wasn’t great as a pass blocker, and he stone handed way too many catches on third down.
Give me Jamaal Williams from the Packers who is a great receiver and a VERY good pass blocker. He’d be a good compliment to Rojo, because he can run the ball well too.. unlike James White, who’s pretty one dimensional.
Fournette is a poor blocker and dropped more balls than RoJo. RoJo is far and away the better runner so yes I think he’s the better overall running back. And if you wanna look at PFF then you will see the same. Fournette was average at best.
RoJo was also top 5 in yards after contact and, before the super bowl, 8 of 9 on 3rd and 1 or 4th and 1.
He’s not a complete running back whatsoever but neither is Fournette. You could get better production from a cheaper back like white, connor, davis, or mack than Fournette.
